Quote: "Through rhythmic, rhymed language, both groups express the frustrations and joys of love: falling in love, heartbreak, jealousy, love triangles. The courtly lover dealt with all these delights and sorrows in a rather stylized way, modeling on continental poets and often translating." "Elizabethan Age." World Book Advanced , Jake Bumgardner, 30 Nov. 2016, Bumgardner, Jake. "Elizabethan Age." World Book Advanced. World Book, 2016. Web. 30 Nov. 2016.Paraphrase: English in the Elizabethan Era and English today are very different in regards to how they are styled.

Love is something still relevant in our lives and will continue to be written about as long as there is love in our lives.
Monarchy Quote: "Whether it is in passing allusions to Elizabeth (such as we find in A Midsummer Night's Dream ), engagements with James' intellectual interests (the use of witchcraft in Macbeth , for example), or displaced and buried consideration of contemporary royal politics (as many have found in Julius Caesar ),Shakespeare's plays are infused more with the presence of the monarchs of his lifetime, about which he could not openly write, than with those of former English rulers.""How to Write about Shakespeare: An Overview." Bloom's Literature , Gleed, Paul. "How to Write about Shakespeare: An Overview." Bloom, Paraphrase: Shakespeare wrote some parts of his plays about the monarchy, such as Queen Elizabeth.

Morality Plays Quote: "Morality plays were allegories (stories that represent abstract ideas or principles as characters, figures, or events) that depicted a struggle between the forces of good and evil.They added farce (comedy that presents absurd characters and scenes in order to make the audience laugh) or current political events, thinly disguised in order to avoid trouble with the authorities." edited by Sonia G. Benson and Jennifer York Stock. Paraphrase: Writing or plays in this era is similar to entertainment today. Plays included humor, current events, and good v.s evil. Although many of the events that occurred in the Elizabethan Era were very different to current events now, we still use a lot of the same ideas in our entertainment as writers did in that period.
